What Is Laser Hair Removal?
Hair growth varies from one person to the next. Unwanted hair growth happens for a huge variety of reasons including hormonal disorders, menopause, pregnancy, and steroids, just to name a few. Laser hair removal is a non-surgical procedure that involves the removal of unwanted hair using laser technology.
Unlike other hair removal methods such as plucking, shaving, waxing, and creams, lasers provide longer-lasting results. In some cases, they can even be permanent. Laser hair removal can be performed on various parts of the body including the:
- Bikini line
Who Is a Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?
Anyone above the age of 21 can undergo laser hair removal in Fresh Meadows, NY. While the procedure is suitable for anyone with unwanted hair, lighter skin tones typically used to achieve better results. However, thanks to advancements in laser technology, we are now able to treat darker skin tones effectively as well. During your initial consultation, one of our top-rated dermatologists will discuss the best options for your individual requirements.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
During a laser hair removal procedure in New York, one of our dermatologists will aim a low-energy laser to the area where you have unwanted hair. The melanin in each of your hair follicles will absorb the energy from the laser, preventing it from growing.
While some of these hairs do grow back, they tend to reappear far lighter and thinner than before. For permanent hair removal, patients can expect to need anywhere between three and seven laser removal sessions. Results do vary between patients depending on their skin tone and their hair type.
Safety and Side Effects
Performed by thousands of experts each year, laser hair removal is a safe procedure that provides exceptional results with minimal downtime. The majority of patients experience no discomfort and can go back to their daily routine immediately after their session. On rare occasions, you may experience some of the following side effects:
These side effects should subside within a few hours of your procedure. If you are concerned about experiencing any discomfort, we are happy to use topical anesthetics, a cooling gel, or ice packs to offer a level of relief.
